Best States in the U.S.A.

The Top TenXW

1California

There should be no debate about this Florida is hot and humid. In southern California the temperature can be in the mid 60's all year round. In northern California it provides some of the best and most scenic national parks in the world including yosemite, sequoia, and Kings Canyon. When people think of California they think of the beach and big cities but they don't seem to remember the variety of places to visit that this wonderful state has.

The guy below me that said it is in the mid 60's all year round: you're an idiot and you clearly don't live in California if you believe that laugh out loud I lived their for 18 years. Hated every minute. Crowded, expensive, rude people. This and New York are 2 of the worst states to live in. Only plus side of California: Orange County, the beach, anywhere except LA, Sacramento, and San Francisco. Basically anywhere but the big cities.

California hands down. It has the most to offer for places to visit. It has the most breathtaking scenery in all the country. Lake Tahoe, the Pacific Ocean, and Yosemite to mention a few. It has the best weather. It also has many outstanding wineries throughout the state which are located in beautiful surroundings. It's great to live in a place where you can travel close by and have so much to offer!

I love California. It has Universal Studios, anaheim, San Diego, LA, and San Francisco, and the sequoia trees.

2New York

Florida is the center of art, talent, development and presidential leadership. Yes it has many rules, road signs and tolls but that is there to contribute to the organization a of this state. There is untouchable law and order and crimes are dealt with immediately. It's towns, neighborhoods and cities are kept safe and people are not worried. At least, I'M not worried. It might like in tourism when you compare it to other states but that is ONE FLAW. There are literally thousands of shops, entertainment venues and fast food restaurants to keep people happy. New York, YOU'RE A WINNER! - davakoh

The lake effect snow is awesome! (Especially Tug Hill) Florida completely sucks in all ways and only the mountains of California are good.

New York has so many cool attractions like the Statue of Liberty, The Empire and Chrysler buildings!

Shoulda been the capital of the US.

3Florida

I Live in Florida and let me tell it pretty awesome especially because has nice weather all the time and it's the state that doesn't also its known for its great beaches/ Florida is where all NASA Shuttles take off Including Apollo 13 And Florida is amazing Orlando, Miami, clearwater, and Tampa.

Florida is my favorite state BY FAR! It has gorgeous beaches, amazing cities, and Disney World, which is my favorite amusement park :) I LOVE Florida! I know the drivers are terrible, but all of the other amazing experiences it has to offer make up for that one downside! Florida is amazing

I know I'm probably going to get shot for putting this above California, but let's face it, Florida is the best of all. It has beautiful beaches, TONS of amazing amusement parks, great cities (MIAMI), and tons of other attractions that make this the best state in America! - christopher94

Florida is awesome. It has Orlando, and all it's theme parks, and the hot weather and awesome beaches

4TexasTexas is a state in the USA. It is the second largest by area and population. Its largest city is Houston.

Texas is the great state you can say every bad thing you want about Texas but every one loves the lone star state and you can't deny that

Even though it is hot it is still a nice place to live. Austin Dallas and everything else!

Two Six Flags parks, good beaches, Dallas, and Austin make this state AWESOME

Some landscapes in Texas can be pretty but it's usually too hot :/

5MinnesotaMinnesota is a state in the Midwestern United States. Minnesota was admitted as the 32nd state on May 11, 1858, created from the eastern half of the Minnesota Territory.

Glad to see my home state up so high where it should be. We have amazingly warm Summer's like Florida, and cold winters like Alaska, Minnesota is the best. - Beatlesboy9

Cold winters and summers that are not that hot. I love winter, so our cold and deep snow and below zero is beautiful.
I live in Bloomington, it's nice and quiet and safe and we have the Mall of America. The Twin Cities are not dangerous, they are safe and so much fun. We have the best changing leaves in the fall, with gigantic leaf piles.
I have three daughters (eleven, nine, and three), and a dog. I consider this the best place to raise kids.
MOA (as us Minnesotans call it) has an American Girl Store (we love AG), an INDOOR amusement park (our favorites are the log chute and the Backyardigans Swing), a movie theater, an aquarium, and more.
There's Irvine Park in St. Paul, and the Minneapolis Institute of Art in Minneapolis.
Minnesota is the best state ever and there is always something to do. Bloomington is a suburb of Twin Cities, so we are part of the Twin Cities, not outstate!

State of Hockey. State of the Accent. Only State with a town that has two official Languages, New Ulm, MN (English, German)

7ColoradoColorado is a state in the United States encompassing most of the Southern Rocky Mountains as well as the northeastern portion of the Colorado Plateau and the western edge of the Great Plains.

In southern cities like Colorado Springs Or Pueblo, it is sunny and beautiful like New Mexico.

8PennsylvaniaPennsylvania, officially the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, is a state located in the northern and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States.

The Keystone State has been home to the Nation's capitol (Philadelphia 6xs, Lancaster, & York), the Birthplace of the nation, the first true religious freedom state, First place of protest against slavery in the U.S. A, some of the biggest manufactures reside in the state (US Steel, Heinz, Hershey), Home to many of the countries first and/or oldest (Bank, Fire department, University, Art Museum, Zoo, Library system, Medical School, and literally almost every else. ) The geographical makeup of the state is also very diverse, as well as the people and animals which inhabit the state. Pennsylvania is indeed a VERY underrated state.

Pennsylvania is by far the most underrated state. It has preserved its culture and beauty. Sometimes I think you haven't lived in America until you've toured the Amish and historic areas of the state. Plus, you can't forget that Philadelphia is here, history and all. And what would we do without Hershey's?

This warms my heart to see my home here

The buildings are old as hell and a pain to live in - kanray

9IllinoisIllinois is a state in the midwestern region of the United States. It is the 5th most populous state and 25th largest state in terms of land area, and is often noted as a microcosm of the entire country.

I live only an hour south of downtown Chicago, and the city is beautiful, epic architecture, great music, and amazing food, the only issue is the gangs in the outlying neighborhoods, but Illinois has some scenic places as well like starved rock, and garden of the gods

Chicago AKA the Windy City is a nice place to be. A lot of job opportunities right by Lake Michigan and has the 2nd tallest building in the world.

if you have to live in this country do it in Illinois - Queen-aholic

Chicago is my favorite city - Ajkloth

Washington. You can find a happy medium for all. As far as the person who disputed the 60s weather and said they lived there for 18 years and is sucked? Does that mean you lived in every part?

13North CarolinaNorth Carolina is a state in the southeastern region of the United States. The state borders South Carolina and Georgia to the south, Tennessee to the west, Virginia to the north, and the Atlantic Ocean to the east.

Mountains, Foothills, Beaches, Fantastic Food, Our State Magazine, face it... North Carolina has it all.

19MarylandMaryland is a state located in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States, bordering Virginia, West Virginia, and Washington, D.C.

There would be no Washington DC if it were not for Maryland. It may not be the best state ever, but it is an extremely important one.

Maryland rocks the most, not California!

20MontanaMontana is a state in the Western region of the United States. The state's name is derived from the Spanish word montaƱa.

There is no other state as beautiful as Montana. Just Google "glacier national park" or "Beartooth range Montana" and you'll see exactly what I mean. No other state even comes CLOSE to the beauty of Montana. I mean, California has the Sierra's but they pale in comparison to the glacially carved Northern Rockies of Montana.

Montana is so pretty. It is a awesome state. Yellowstone National Park is in Montana. - ninja122710
